Authorization for the Board to decide on acquisition and assignment of treasury shares
The AGM approved the Board’s proposed authorization for the Board to decide on acquisition and transfer of treasury shares. The decision implies that acquisition of treasury shares on Nasdaq Stockholm (the “Marketplace”), or by an offer to all shareholders, may at each time not lead to that held treasury shares exceed ten per cent of all shares in the Company. Transfer of treasury shares may be made in other ways than on the Marketplace, including a right to deviate from the shareholders preferential rights and that payment may be made by other means than by cash. A maximum of ten per cent of the total number of the shares in the Company may be transferred. The authorization stated above may be utilized on one or several occasions up until the annual general meeting 2019. Acquisitions of shares on the Marketplace may only be made at a price within the registered price interval at the Marketplace. Transfer of treasury shares in connection with acquisitions of businesses may be made at a market price estimated by the board.
Guidelines for remuneration to senior executives
The AGM approved the Board’s proposed guidelines for remuneration and other conditions of employment to senior executives.
Authorization for the Board to decide on new share issue to finance further growth and expansion.
The AGM approved the Board’s proposed authorization for the Board to decide on new share issue in order to fund continued growth and expansion, such as in connection with acquisitions, until the time of AGM 2019. This authorization entails the right to issue new shares corresponding to an amount of at most ten per cent of the number of issued shares on the day of the notice of the AGM. New shares may be paid in cash, by set-off or by contribution in kind. Share issues may be made with or without deviation from the shareholders' preferential rights. The issue price shall be based on market practice.
Long-term share based incentive plan and transfer of treasury shares
The AGM resolved to adopt the board's proposal of a long-term share based incentive plan (“LTIP 2018”). LTIP 2018 comprises approximately seven employees consisting of senior executives and other key employees. The specific purpose of LTIP 2018 is to offer the executive management of the recently acquired company Open Wave Mobility, and certain members of the executive management of Enea who did not participate in LTIP 2017, a long-term incentive. None of the participants in LTIP 2017 will participate in LTIP 2018. The participants are allocated performance share rights, which provide the participant with a right to acquire shares. Following the defined vesting period, the participants will, free of charge, be allocated shares in the Company provided that certain conditions are fulfilled. The vesting period for LTIP 2018 commences when the participant enters into an agreement regarding participation in the plan and expires in connection with the announcement of the Company’s interim report for the first quarter in 2021. Allocation of shares requires the participant to remain employed within the Enea Group during the vesting period. In addition, a pre-requisite for the allocation of shares is that certain performance targets are fulfilled concerning Enea’s average yearly growth in turnover, average yearly increase in the operating profit and average yearly growth in earnings per share during 2018-2020. The maximum value (including any compensation that the participants receive for paid dividends) that a participant can receive for each share right is limited to SEK 312, which is 400 per cent of the average Enea share price during a period of ten trading days immediately following the announcement of the year-end report on 8 February 2018.
The maximum number of shares in the Company, which may be allocated in total under the LTIP 2018, shall be limited to 180,000, which represents approximately 0.9 percent of all outstanding shares and votes in the Company.
The AGM further resolved that 180,000 shares in the Company may be transferred to participants in LTIP 2018 who under the terms for the LTIP 2018 are entitled to receive shares and that transfer of shares shall be made at the time and according to the other terms pursuant to which participants in LTIP 2018 are entitled to receive shares.
